HMRC has warned of a huge rise in the number of tax scams this year. Double check any email appearing to come from the tax office or from an accountant with details of where you should pay outstanding tax. Gareth Lloyd, head of digital security at HMRC, says the tax office never contacts customers who are due a tax refund via email, “We always send a letter through the post.”

If you receive a suspicious email, do not click on any of the links and forward it to: phishing@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk, before deleting.
Anyone who has answered one of these emails should forward it and the details you have disclosed to: security.custom@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk.
